Place in the sun

It's not often that the AJ makes it into the illustrious pages of the Sun newspaper. But last week AJ editor Isabel Allen was called upon to defend architects against the Sun 's charge that: 'We don't build 'em like that any more.'

As any Sun reader can see, it simply doesn't make sense that the Dome soaked up £758 million and is only expected to last 25 years, the Thames footbridge cost £18 million and lasted just three days, whereas Stonehenge cost 'peanuts' to build and has stood for 4000 years. Things really ain't what they used to be.
